Pumpkin Spice Cupcakes with Bittersweet Chocolate Ganache

The under-appreciated pairing of pumpkin and dark chocolate brings tears to my eyes. You'll find the recipe for these Halloween-y cupcakes at Maine Food & Lifestyle. I developed it this summer, as a back up for my Bangor Metro Food File. I wasn't gluten-free then, and neither are these cupcakes. I intended to work up a GF version this weekend, but I was out of pumpkin, so sucks to my ass-mar.

  4. Pumpkin and chocolate were made for each other... And these cupcakes look killer! I usually just throw chips into mine, but a ganache topping sounds really good.

  6. Pumpkin and dark chocolate sound like a match made in heaven! I'd have never thought to combine the two. These are so cute....I regret that I have yet to make anything with pumpkin this season. I will very soon though.
